From what I can recall is is built on the same chassis as the "new" VW Beetle.
You can now get it in a drop top as well as a coupe.
Turbo option,I believe was 225 hp.Quattro is also available too.
So far I have only seen one in person.They are kinda spendy,but,I cannot recall a price.
I will see if I can come up with more info!
I'd buy several new bikes instead, all different flavors! I haven't seen a street car yet that gives me the kick of a good sportbike. On the other hand... a good dirt oval and an 800 horse winged sprint car... THAT'S a RUSH!
Audi TT is a very sweet car. The TT runs about $30-33K, 911 is about $70K, and a boxster is about $40K. So a boxster is a close price difference but a real porsche isn't. Not all of us are big money web developers Robert!
I can see how the TT and the bug look a little alike, but I must disagree. The new beetle is a goofy, dork car. I laugh at grown men driving them and wonder about the manhood of a younger guy driving one. To me, it is a chick car just like the V6 mustang.
Just my .02.
